Dr. Florence Akinwumiju, the health director at Amazing Natural Health & Wellness, has spent 20 years as a medical nurse and a doctor of natural health. That doesn't mean she has always been healthy herself, though?she struggled with high blood pressure for many years. Ultimately, she decided her Western medications were part of the problem, treating just her surface symptoms and creating myriad unwanted side effects. This prompted her to shift her treatment, as well as her practice, toward natural vitamins and supplements geared to balancing the body.
She never looked back. Today, she helps patients tackle symptoms from migraines to asthma with vitamins and supplements, often tailored to the specific patients via Zyto assessment. During the noninvasive assessment, which takes only five minutes, patients rest their hand in a hand cradle while a machine scans their physiques, then spits out supplement recommendations. However, other treatments approach holistic health from other angles. Ionic footbaths, for instance, draw toxins out through through the soles of the feet more effectively than suction-cup shoes, and colonics flush out toxins with up to eight gallons of purified water.
After beginning her massage therapy career in Grenada, Tinasha Gray decided to a bring a piece of that calming, tropical oasis environment to Douglasville by founding Source of Wellness Massage.

Drawing from a wide array of specialized modalities?including everything from Swedish strokes and aromatherapy to reflexology and trigger-point therapy?the team alleviates the chronic aches and discomfort that can be caused by pent-up stress or injury. Though massage is the spa's main focus, the aestheticians also pamper visitors with indulgent cosmetic services, such as personalized facials, back facials, and waxing treatments that leave skin as smooth and hair-free as a freshly shaved manta ray.
The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients? health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical rehab specialists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.
